1. From the heart

5. Colored notes

If you’re not into plain black tattoos, and are looking for a bit more color to brighten up your look, you can always overlay a simple black tattoo with a splash of watercolor to not only personalize a regular design, but bring some additional life to it too.

But whether you go simple, or decide to go a bit more detailed or large, make sure to pick your studio and artist carefully, ensure that sealed packs of needles are opened in front of you, and make sure to follow all guidelines to insure no infections occur after the fact. Happy Inking!
